Hi All,

I'm applying for quite a few jobs at the moment and there are a few possibilities of interviews on the horizon. The jobs all require some knowledge of things like PHP, CGI, Perl, Unix Shell Scripting, XML, JavaScript/VBScript, .NET, Java, JSP, HTML, CSS, Unix/Linux system administration, SQL, MySQL, IIS Administration.

I am ofay with some of these technologies but have been in a job where I haven't been using them every day and have become quite rusty. I also have no clue about some of the others....! I have been using computers for 20 years so I can pick up things quickly.

I would really like to know if there is anywhere I can learn the above technologies quickly, I've tried the obvious - google, wikipedia etc but wondered if any of you know of any good resources. I don't need to know them in great detail, just would like to have an idea so I don't look like a prat in the interviews.

Well, W3Schools is a good place for learning some of that stuff. Mainly the online stuff like HTML, CSS, XML, etc... Other than that, go to a book store and pick up some books. Also, I find wikipedia is a great way to look like you know more than you do. :whistling:
